KIRKUS REVIEW

The fascinating phenomenon of animal time telling and direction finding is described in this text which should interest even the most indifferent students of animal, fish, bird and insect behavior. How herons determine the changing of tides, how pigeons find their homes, how crabs tell time, these and many other examples of the keen intuitive mechanisms that govern non-human life are illustrated. Margaret Hyde provides the reader with the possibility of observing animal clocks and compasses himself, by providing him with suggestions of where to watch and how.
